Klarisana was founded in 2015 in response to an “alarming Veteran suicide rate” in soldiers returning from intense combat situations. As well as making ketamine therapy more widely available to ailing Veterans, the Klarisana Westminster, CO clinic also provides help to any other individual struggling with treatment-resistant mental health conditions. The clinic, and team, were founded on the idea that each individual has a “unique mission” in life, and restoring the ability to pursue that mission is the primary goal of Klarisana Westminster. Trusted and in use for over 50 years in emergency and combat situations, ketamine now offers the hope of a revolutionary treatment for difficult to manage and chronic health conditions.
Klarisana founder Dr. Carl Bonnett is a twenty-year veteran of the Army National Guard, and was inspired to open the clinic after witnessing the toll suicide, and the lack of treatment, has taken on U.S. Military Veterans. The Klarisana Westminster clinic grew from the original Klarisana one-room office (“the smallest ketamine clinic in the world”) in 2015 to the beautiful campus that now provides a calm, safe, and private environment in which to explore a revolutionary treatment for difficult to manage conditions. As well as Veterans, Klarisana Westminster welcomes all those whose experiences with mainstream treatments have proven ineffective. Ketamine infusions provide a laboratory-tested, research-driven alternative to traditional medical practice.
If ketamine infusions at Klarisana are deemed appropriate, the 1-2 hour infusion sessions are monitored by one of the expert nurse practitioners or physician assistants at the clinic. Some patients report mild side effects, and although ketamine “elicits changes in perception of sights, sounds, time, and space,” this is a normal part of the process. Should the side effects become distracting, staff are on hand to assist each patient.
Intravenous ketamine therapy is an option for those whose experience with traditional oral medications has been disappointing. Ketamine therapy functions as either an alternative to mainstream practices, or as a supplement to ongoing therapy. Of the millions who suffer from mental health problems, thousands struggle against treatment resistant conditions – ketamine therapy offers a potentially life-changing solution.
